San Angelo, TX--Currently live in El Paso, TX
Name of Your School / Library / Organization:
Wow! It's been an interesting past few years. I got out of librarianship and became an Instructional Technologist. Did that for a couple of years, had a heart attack, got divorced, became a Curriculum Coach. I held that for a year then decided to go back into the classroom.

Our school is entering it's 4th year. This is the first year we've had seniors. This is my second full year at my library. We were lucky enough to be able to add another full-time librarian. I've worked with her before, and she's a great addition to the team.

I have a MS in library science, a MS in computer information systems, and a MA in history. I also work part time at a local community college.

Book a Day

I've started a Quixotic project for this school year.  I'm going to review one YA book a day for every school day.  We start school early, so we've already been back a week.  I got ahead of my reading this summer, so I should be able to keep up.  

I'm doing the reviews on Instagram.  I take a selfie with a book covering my face.  Then I give a super short review.  I'm hoping it turns into a way students at my school can get suggestions for books.

Great first day!

My first day back in a library was great.  Met a lot of great kids.  We have some really prolific readers with some pretty eclectic tastes.  I love that! 

Other than that, got my online calendar set up so that teachers can schedule library time via the website.  I also created an online collaboration form.  That should really simplify things for planning.  I hope it does anyway.

I'm going to announce my plans for the library advisory committee today.  I'll post how well it went…

Back in a library

Today is my first day back.  I'm really excited.  There is so much to do here, but it should be a lot of fun.  First major thing I need to get done is create my library advisory committee.  After that, we will really need to update my vision and mission.  If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Web 2.0

I'm currently using Moodle to create a professional development course about Web 2.0 technologies. I'm using a topic structure for my modules. Each module will last a week. I have five modules planned: blogs, wikis, RSS, social bookmarking and mashups, and podcasts and images. I'm creating the course for the El Paso Area Libraries consortium. It will be made available to librarians across El Paso. Has anyone done anything similar. I would love to get into contact with someone who has a similar… Continue

I'm going to spend my first blog talking about two tools I like. The first is If you are new to RSS, this is a great place to start. I follow about ten different blogs from this site. It makes it easy for me to keep up with my favority topics without having to look in different places.

Another tool that I'm really starting to like is Moodle. Moodle is an open-source classroom management system that allows you to offer classes online. I'm still developing some…
